Outside of George Perry’s 1932 world and Georgia state record largemouth bass, Michigan has the second-longest streak without its largemouth bass record being broken. Set on June 25, 1934, by Bill Maloney, the 11-pound, 15-ounce, record has stood for 89 years, only to be tied in 1959 by Jack Rorex. Maloney’s fish won the 1934 Field & Stream Northern division for largemouth bass and was well documented by the outdoor editor and managing editor for the Detroit Free Press. The fish was weighed on certified scales and witnessed. Case closed.
